    What I'd like to do is give Pyro a head that closer resembles his Last Stand of the Wrecker's head sculpt. At minimum, I plan to cut off his nose and lips, sand the face a bit and paint it silver. Does anyone have any better ideas? This would be a rather expensive custom to screw up.

    I'm also thinking replacing/modding WFC Prime's head to use as a stand in.

    Do you have a universe / classics Inferno head you could use in its stead?

    Yea dude you need to use a Uni Inferno head if you plan on actually cutting into the head,you don't want to mess up the BotCon figure.

    Smolder's head does look pretty nice. I'll have to get my hands on one before I decide to use it. Then I'll have to look into finding the right color paint to match the rest of the body.

    Thanks for the advice, even though I have an extra loose set of the boxset, I really don't want to cut up the exclusive head.

    I have both Inferno and Smolder in my collection. I feel that Smolder's torso-mode head would be too small.

    What would be a good head then? A modded Inferno/Grapple head or something else.

    Yeah, there's one readily available on Shapeways for just this purpose.

    Here you go. I haven't used it, but I've seen it on a custom posted here and it looked pretty good!
